  1. Anion Exchange Resin for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Sepax Technologies, Inc. has identified a new type of anoin-exchange resin which separates single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) with >80% recovery yield and resolves in a single pass the chiral tubes of (6,5) well from commercial SWCNT starting materials by Chromatography. Improvement and scale up of the targeted resin production will facilitate the separation of chiral nanotubes for the academic ...

  2. Irradiated Environmental Chambers

    SBC: Measurement Analysis Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Using a novel concept for humidity control, based on a proprietary saturated air source, MAC will construct and evaluate a prototype of an environmental chamber for use with NIST’s SPHERE UV source, in weathering or other UV degradation studies. The chamber will interface to the exit ports of the SPHERE, maintaining the material coupons, mounted in a standardized sample holder, at a programmed t ...

  3. Fulcrum Biometrics' Plan for Research and Development of WS-BD Conformant Handheld Fingerprint Sensor

    SBC: Fulcrum Biometrics, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Trusted biometric validation of individual identities has never been more important. Several contributing factors are the increase in global terrorism, identity theft and the increase in legislation which are driving the accelerated adoption of biometric technology. Unfortunately, the biometrics industry has not actively responded to the changing market conditions being driven by the explosion in ...

  4. A Compact, Tamper-Resistant, Portable Fingerprint Scanner

    SBC: SBG Labs            Topic: N/A

    With the growing demand for more efficient fingerprinting techniques, live scans are rapidly displacing traditional ink-based methods. Despite improvements in detector and processing technology for capturing and digitizing fingerprints, current equipment falls well short of NIST’s goal of a small, tamper-resistant, battery-powered, handheld scanner. Incumbent equipment suppliers have little comm ...

  5. Compound Magnetic Lens for Providing Focused, Polarized Neutrons

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 15b

    An improved neutron collection and focusing lens is needed for small angle neutron scatter and neutron microscopy, and increasing flux for thermal neutron capture gamma analysis. Adelphi Technology proposes to design, fabricate, and test a two-dimensional magnetic lens to refract and focus thermal and cold neutrons. The proposed magnetic lens is comprised of a stack of annular permanent magnets, w ...

  6. High Energy Sub-100 Femtosecond Fiber Lasers at 2 Micron

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: 15d

    There is an urgent need to develop a new high-energy 2m ultrafast fiber laser system in order to achieve the optimized efficiency of the ESASE process, which is beneficial in areas ranging from atomic and molecular sciences to chemical, materials, and biological studies. To reach the mid-IR wavelengths for ESASE application, the traditional way is to shift the wavelengths of these commercially ava ...

  7. Development of a Field Emitter Array Based High-Current Electron Injector

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: 11c

    At present there exists a very significant science and technology gap for the production of photocathodes that have both high quantum efficiency (QE) and long lifetime. The National Academies has identified this as an area of critical importance to the development of high-power free-electron lasers (FEL). If the high-current electron injectors required are based on low-QE cathodes, then the requ ...

  9. Multi-Channel Time-to-Digital Converter for Pulse Shape Analysis

    SBC: Katsman, Vladimir            Topic: 33b

    Robust reconfigurable high-accuracy time-to-digital converters (TDCs) are required for next generation nuclear physics experiments, as well as existing system upgrade, such as particle identification in Time-of-Flight detectors, particle tracking in gas-based drift detectors, and BaF2 detectors in particular. Our company proposes to develop a novel, multi-channel time interval digitizing system- o ...

  10. Nb Coatings for Bellows used in SRF Accelerators

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: 12d

    High-current particle accelerators have need for low-impedance bellows connecting accelerating cells and in other areas of the accelerator. Typical techniques to decrease surface impedance are to use shields of superconducting Nb, however, as these shields move they produce particulates that can be detrimental to operation if they find their way into the storage ring. Alameda Applied Sciences Corp ...
